Alfalfa’s name is rooted in the Arabic word that literally means “father of all foods.” Excuse the pun about roots….however, that’s exactly the point. Its roots can grow up to 39 feet in length—extending deep into the earth for a variety of nutrients.
PINES’ Alfalfa is a high potency source of the antioxidant Vitamin A as Beta carotene. It’s also an excellent source of Vitamin K, and contains Folic acid, as well as small amounts of Vitamin C, calcium and iron.And when you see the word ‘alfalfa’, you probably think about the sprouts we add to our salads. Although there are some nutrients in these nearly translucent wisps, a more complex source of nutrients and rich chlorophyll come from the dark green leaves of the established alfalfa plant months after it germinates and grows to a height of several feet outdoors in soil.
PINES Alfalfa is the ONLY certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified alfalfa leaf. PINES dried alfalfa leaf is available in powder and tablet form, packed in amber glass oxygen-free bottles. PINES depends on natural rainfall for all its crops and never uses potentially contaminated irrigation water. PINES low-temperature dries its alfalfa and then keeps it frozen until ready for packaging. Most all of the dried alfalfa on the market is cut and left to dry by baking in the hot sun, thus depleting the leaf from its original dark green color and nutrients. PINES is one of the few brands that provides 98% pure alfalfa tablets without all the chalk (calcium-based chemical binders) that is contained in some other alfalfa tablets in the marketplace.
Founded in 1976, PINES oInternational (www.wheatgrass.com) is a successful natural products company, still owned by the original founders and families. PINES products are made with the utmost care, with the focus on creating and maintaining maximum nutritional value every step of the way.
